Jersey Twist Patterns - 'In An Afternoon!'


Next Available: 18 Nov 1:00PM
4.0 hours

Description

This afternoon workshop is an opportunity to work through one of Studio Faro's most popular #PatternPuzzles and cut a Jersey Twist Top for your own use.  This is my chance to share the pattern making methods behind my Jersey Twists and many other designs on my blog well-suited.

Starting with my industry ready knit block, students will work to their nearest size to create a Jersey Twist Top Pattern.  Using professional materials and equipment you will all make a detailed pattern plan (to keep) for the development of your jersey twist pattern.  Then students will trace the front pattern and use either the 'cut & paste' or pivoting technique to complete the next stage of the pattern.  These pattern developments have the potenial to make a single or double twist top pattern.

There will be demonstrations and discussions around the variation found in knit fabrics and the specific qualitites we look for when making jersey twist patterns.  All stages of this process are demonstrated by me and samples are available for students to inspect.  There will be discussion about the effective use of grain for these patterns and a clear order of construction (sewing) for you to use at home.

All students will leave the workshop with a completed pattern and receive a detailed workbook covering the afternoons training and more. Pattern making materials and equipment are provided for use at the studio during the workshop at no extra charge.  

This workshop does not include sewing or the detail of achieving your own personal fit; but focusses on pattern making adaptations for these jersey twists. Achieving your own personal fit blocks is covered in my Personal Block Development Workshops.

30 June 2016 • Jersey Twist Patterns - 'In An Afternoon!'

Another excellent class. As a home sewer this project focused 'dip' into pattern making is a lovely way to learn new skills and concepts, that have a practical application as well as take home patterns. Understanding how the twist is created opens up possibilities to adapt other patterns in future as well as design options such as tops and dresses, twist at bust or waist (front or back), with v-neck or boat neck or cowl, symmetrical or asymmetrical. Great instructor, really enjoyed the afternoon.

Anita is definitely a little known secret. I enjoyed this class thoroughly and would definitely do more, There was as little or as much to learn as you wanted, I was inspired and very excited to apply what I learned. Anita was both generous and a well of information that she was happy to pass on. This class allowed you to draft a pattern for yourself, rather than a standard industry pattern as I have done in other courses where yo come home with something you cannot use. Studio Faro has you leaving with a totally useable pattern for you if that is what you desire, and desire I did. Thank you for the inspiration, knowledge and fun. Nieves
